HELLO! I AM NENA.
A food content creator.
I cook and style dishes, and also write food stories.
Playing with food (and eating) is my life’s purpose.
This is me.
If you’ve watched Ratatouille (the Pixar film) as many times as I have, chances are you read that headline with Remy’s voice in mind. If you didn’t, this is awkward.
My name is Antonieta, and I’m happy for you to call me Nena. I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela; and moved to London nine years ago, where I live with my husband, his film collection, and all my books about Food.
I cannot imagine a life without good food, good wine, good music and good books.
For the past ten years, I’ve built a career in Advertising Production, working with a long list of wonderful local, regional, and global brands. I’ve loved every second of it. Yet, about five years ago, I started feeling that something was missing.
While many people travel long distances to magical destinies to find their life purpose and mission, I was lucky to find mine in a daily activity: eating.
Food moves me. It is the one subject I can talk about for hours, only followed by Friends and Harry Potter. My fantasy dinner is a feast at Hogwarts Castle, where Nena wouldn’t share food.
Since we must eat to live, we might as well do it with both grace and gusto.M.F.K Fisher
Creating food content.
Another thing you should know about me is that I love a challenge, and this is my biggest project, so far. It is a place to showcase my Food-related talents, although you won’t be able to taste my food. I wish you could!
My goal is to share my Food Adventures with you, whether that be trying and styling a new recipe, writing a story about a dish or my travels, or even telling you about whatever mishap I have had with building this blog. I’ve had plenty already.
My dream is to spend the next chapter of my life as a food content creator. This is the foundation, and I’m happy you are joining me on this journey.
